NASA is building moon rockets, possibly for the last time


NASA’s expensive rocket program could be the agency’s last such effort, some former NASA officials and space industry executives say, as private space companies try to build vehicles faster. cheaper.

Next month, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is planning another round of tests for a rocket built as part of its Space Launch System program, as the agency’s lunar rocket effort is called, and other hardware. NASA intends to use SLS rockets on missions to bring astronauts back to the lunar surface, and later this year is planning an uncrewed test flight of an SLS rocket and a Orion spacecraft that it will put into orbit.
